Senate Passes CISA; Next comes negotiations with House

After years of debate and much opposition, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA, S 754) passed on October 27, 2015. Amendments that were supported by the American Library Association and many coalition partners were defeated.

The Senate and House will now need to reconcile their different bills. Further action will likely not occur until late 2015 or early 2016.

For more information, see the District Dispatch article.

Your advocacy efforts to try and defeat this bill are greatly appreciated!


Advocacy Alert! Stop the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act!

There’s still time to take action to stop the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 (CISA), S. 754. The bill is very broad, threatens personal privacy and could result in disruption to library and other networks. The Senate will reconvene this morning at 10am to vote on this bill. Please contact Senators Mikulski and Cardin to ask:

  • VOTE YES on the Leahy and Franken Amendments (No. 2587 and (No. 2612), respectively; and
  • VOTE NO on CISA when the bill itself finally comes to a vote even if the amendments pass.

An easy-to-use tool is available to tweet or email your Senators at

For more details, including links to the bill, proposed amendments and background information, see the District Dispatch article.

Thanks in advance for any advocacy you can provide!
